Welcome to Year 3 – Y3CH
The children have had a brilliant start to Y3. They are gaining a breadth of knowledge by exploring the question “What does it mean to survive and thrive?” During this topic, we will be learning how to use a range of sources to compare features of the lives of people between these periods. We will understand that there is little remaining evidence so that as historians we must infer and imagine. Following on from this our over-all outcome is to be able to design a nutritious soup for the homeless and link this back to our knowledge of surviving and thriving.
In maths, we will be focusing on the key skills of place value and addition and subtraction. The children are enjoying working in their maths groups and are keen to develop their arithmetic skills, we have been using different apparatus to help us understand how place value, addition and subtraction works practically and are now becoming amazing mathematicians by apply more abstract methods to real world problems.
In literacy, we are working on our own letters home. We will pretend that we have gone back in time to see the Stone Age and tell everyone what really happened.
In regards to our timetable, we have PE on Tuesday afternoons so please remember to bring your PE kit. We have shared the timetable with parents and children, so any queries please get in touch.
If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything, please do not hesitate to see me before or after school. If this is not possible you can also ring the school office.
